PiersMorgan takes aim at the Bible

You've got to hand it to BLOW HARD Brit Piers Morgan. While he got most of the facts wrong in his recent targeting of the Second Amendment, it hasn't stopped him from moving on to even more formidable targets. Such as the Bible. He says the book is "inherently flawed" -- and needs to be amended.
Piers handed down his decree while interviewing Saddle back Church pastor Rick Warren on the December 24th "Piers Morgan Tonight." Yes, on Christmas Eve. When other hosts might be discussing love, brotherhood, salvation, and all things ethereal, Captain Morgan was giving us the world according to Piers. And how would he improve the Good Book? Said he, "Both the Bible and the Constitution were well intentioned, but they are basically, inherently flawed. Hence the need to amend it. My point to you about gay rights, for example; it's time for an amendment to the Bible."
Well, Piers, we're so blessed to have you to correct both America's founding document and the most influential book in history. We had to suffer more than 200 years with one and more than 2000 with the other, but the right god-man has finally come along. Oh, and when you're done with that, old boy, can you contact the Genome Project and rewrite the human genetic code for us? We're flawed, too.
While many will say, as Warren might have implied, that relativism reduces morality to opinion, even this is both too generous and a misunderstanding. "Opinion" often refers to a thesis about what may be the answer to a particular question, about what may be true. But this presupposes that there are answers to be found, that there is such a thing as "true." In other words, Mars exists not because everyone believes it does, but because its existence is a physical truth. And the question is, does moral Truth exist in the same way, apart from man and his imagination? If not, then saying that something is morally "true" would make as much sense as saying that planet Vulcan exists simply because you felt it did. Delusion does not a truth make. So relativism does not reduce morality to opinion. It implies something else.
That morality doesn't exist.
After all, to say that society determines "morality" is to simply put lipstick on the pig of man's preferences about behavior. To analogize the matter, if we learned that 90 percent of the world preferred vanilla to chocolate, would this somehow make chocolate "wrong" or "evil"? No, it would simply be an issue of taste. But then how does it make any sense to say that murder is "wrong" if the only reason we do so is that the majority of the world prefers that one not kill in a way the majority calls "unjust"? If this is all it is, then murder falls into the same category as flavor: taste. Again, delusion does not a truth make.
More intellectually nimble moral relativists have thought the above through and -- although their ultimate conclusion is wrong -- they don't fool themselves the way Morgan, Richard Dawkins, and virtually every other leftist does.The same applies to homosexual "rights." If "morals" are values and values just reflect tastes, how can respecting homosexuals be morally superior to persecuting them? How can any behavior preference rightly be judged at all? I think here of how the robot in the film Terminator 2: Judgment Day repeatedly asked the adolescent John Connor why he shouldn't kill people. "Why? Why?" The machine was just being logical, unlike the liberal organic robots (atheism = no souls = man is merely chemicals and water) that entertain meaning-inducing illusions. In a relativistic universe, moral principles do not compute. This is why any relativism-buttressed point collapses upon itself.
It is also what your relativism implies.
That is Philosophy 101. And if you can't understand even that, Mr. Morgan, you're going to start to seem, to use your own words, like an "unbelievably stupid man."

Is Morgan Gay? I think the gays would quit firing at the bible if the right winged Christians would stop firing at them..... 42% of Christians support gay marraige or some form of civil union. This is America . Rights are for everyone, not the majority. None of us are free until all of us are free.
Some would say you have to take a stand. I do. Ima follower of Christ and I support gay rights. I find I more oppose those REICHT winged individuals who can't live their own lives, but want to tell you how to live yours .....
Just read the bible. If you are a man in puberty who reads the bible and seem to get that gay marraige is wrong? Don't marry another man or you're going to struggle with your beliefs systems. But I suppose that if you can't deny your homosexual attractions for another male? Perhaps you should examine your belief system....

Pierce Morgan is a jerk.
Just another talking head leftist in the mainstream newsmedia. He will say whatever he is paid to say. The fact that he actually believes the leftist crap he spouts makes it worse.
And the trouble is that even if he (and the leftist ilk like him) were to have zero (not a single one) audience, they would still get paid the big bucks to go on TV and spout Communist propaganda night and day.
Why is that?
Because people pay their cable bills. Part of a cable package includes these pinko-commie news agencies, such as CNN, Headline news, Msnbc,cbs, nbc, abc, and so on.
So, if you pay a cable bill, then you are, in effect, funding the erosion of America.
Its rather insidious, isnt it?
And so, we can all now see that Senator Joe McCarthy was right. Communist have indeed infiltrated the news and entertainment industry.
Dont believe it? Just turn on a mainstream media news station. The leftist propaganda wont be long in coming.

And I suppose there is no propaganda coming from the hypocritical right. Right? Yeah FOX news is always truthful and balanced. LOL

One of the usual tactics of the leftist is to change the subject and attack in some other direction from the subject. That is because leftist cant win a debate based on logic that sticks to the subject.
But, Yes, Fox news is more reliable than the rest of them, even though they are pulling their punches a bit these days, and not covering the stories with the same vigor that they used to.
Try watching Fox news, you might just learn something.
Or better yet, you can just cancel your cable subscription like I did. There aint anything one that worth paying a big cable bill for anyway. 50 channels of infomercials and shopping networks, slanted and untruthful news channels, and when an interesting show does come on, it has 5 minutes of show for every 10 minuts of commercial breaks.

Wait a minute. You are going to accuse me of changing the subject when you brought up the whole "leftist media propaganda"? Typical hypocritical right wing tactic. Enjoy your Fox News. I won't be duped into believing all their hogwash.

He's actually married and has children. Any 5-year old could goggle that and find out without making themselves look stupid on topix instead of ranting against gay people.

I couldnt care less about his personal life. I just think he is an egotistical activist out on some left wing crusade. I think he enjoys getting his "atta boys" from the jet set leftist elite.
He is supposed to be a reporter, which implies neutrality.
Instead, he is a political participant and an activist. An unelected one at that.
So, there you go. My opinions of just another left wing, radical nut job, socialist sleeze bag.
I wont watch his show.

I think Pierre Morgan is an idiot and I'd never dream of watching his stupid show..
#10 Mar 10, 2013
I feel the exact same way about Rush Limbaugh and the idiots at Fox News.
#11 Mar 10, 2013
I don't like Rush either, nor do I watch Fox News or any other main stream news media
